Welcome to our new website.

Our Wonderful Learning (OWL)

In our learning we use OWLs which are matched to the curriculum objectives in our subjects. OWL stands for Our Wonderful Learning. The children have enjoyed using these OWLs, one Year 6 child stated that she loved how simple the OWLs were to follow and how they helped her to manage her own learning better. Please see below an example of our OWLs. We also use the theme of OWLs to help the children reflect on their own learning.
